Car Seat Headrest have released new single ‘There Must Be More Than Blood’ today (April 24). It’s another track from their upcoming album, ‘Making A Door Less Open’.
Listen to ‘There Must Be More Than Blood’ below:
The release of the nearly eight-minute song is accompanied by a video in which the band’s Will Toledo performs the song acoustically while in character as the masked ‘Trait’ persona used through the album’s rollout.

‘Making A Door Less Open’ marks the first album of new material from Car Seat Headrest since 2016’s ‘Teens of Denial’. Back in 2018, the band released ‘Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)’, a reworked, re-recorded version of Car Seat Headrest’s 2011 album ‘Twin Fantasy’.
The new album is a “collaboration” of sorts between Car Seat Headrest and 1 Trait Danger, the electronic side project of Toledo and CSH drummer Andrew Katz. The band recorded the new album twice: once live with guitars, drums and bass, and once in a MIDI environment using purely synthesised sounds.
Last year, Car Seat Headrest released a live album, ‘Commit Yourself Completely’.
